I think the last time that I was here we were snowed in on Christmas Day. We did finally get to celebrate x-mas with Jacobs family that next weekend and Cooper brought in the new year in his dreams. We had a wonderful time with them, but as always it goes by too fast. The following weekend of Jan 9th we got to celebrate Christmas with my family in College Station at the Lake which was different but it was fun. Cooper got lots of new toys which he has HIGHLY enjoyed but bc of the high quantity of toys Jacob and I had to go through all his old toys and donate some and pack some away.
Cooper in swing on New Years DayI was off on Martin Luther King day so we took Cooper to the sitter so Jacob and I could enjoy a date of lunch and a movie. After our movie me and Cooper went to meet Maria and Ella at the zoo, which was nice to be outside in the wonderful weather we were having for a Jan in Oklahoma. Cooper was acting very laid back and not smiley like he normally is, so we took him over to my sisters house so she could look at his ears and sure enough he had a horrible double ear infection. On top of his ear infections there was also some kind of virus going around at the sitter. He was having a bad runny nose, sneezing, horrible cough that made him projectile vomit every time and nice blowouts. After 2 rounds of antibiotics he is doing much better and is back to his old self.
